For a great article as well as for your incredible generosity with the Motherlode plants, your own plants, and your own expertise.

I have to question your self-diagnosis, though. Most of the addicts I know don't share their stash with anyone and everyone as you have done. Generosity is, in some ways, the opposite of addiction.

Thanks again!

Thanks, Michele, for your kind comments. One of the nicest aspects of having far more plants than any human should ever own was having the opportunity to spread them around and become friends with some wonderful people, such as yourself, along the way. I think gardening obsession may be one of the few addictions where we find joy in sharing our "stash" with others -- maybe it just provides us reassurance that when we are desperate for another plant, we can call on one of those persons we've given plants and beg for relief with a bit of greenery? LOL
